Education, General
Description:The Specialization in Indigenous Education is designed to deepen awareness and understanding of the complex issues involved in curriculum and teaching related to First Nations, Inuit and Metis Education in Canada. Participants learn firstly about the strengths, needs and challenges of Indigenous students and their communities, as a starting point for honoring traditional ways of knowing and being and acknowledging more faithfully the history, contributions and prospects of Indigenous Peoples. In the second term emerging opportunities to integrate Indigenous themes respectfully across the K-12 school curriculum are investigated. Throughout the program key themes include the need for developing more inclusive Indigenous research and curricula and more culturally responsive pedagogies and assessment practices.

Deeply personal, transformational learning is achieved through community site visits in partnership with Aboriginal communities across the region. These include Elsipogtog (New Brunwsick), Membertou (Nova Scotia), Mill Brook (NS), and Lennox Island (Prince Edward Island) First Nations. These intensive cultural immersion experiences, combined with in-class guest presentations, and talking circles on seminal readings and guided, sustained reflections throughout the program, enable participants to learn firsthand about the processes of recovery for Indigenous communities and the essential supports for their students to experience success at all levels from pre-school through post-secondary education.
